Christmas in Columbus

We were happy to have our Hunter family come visit us for the holidays. First Zach and Olive and then Greg, Lisa, Sutton and Claira. It was a full house but we enjoyed it- Thanks for coming you guys! And thank you to all of our family who we didn't get to see this year- you made our christmas! Beau and I were so busy with the new baby and his board exam (which by the way he passed!) that we didnt have much time to shop for our girls but you made their christmas and we still had many great things under the tree! Tatum loved it and is still loving it!

Family of 4!

"my first christmas"

I dont have many pics of olive i realized because zach took so many amazing pics with his camera... cant wait to get some copies of them. He posted them on facebook if anyone wants to see those.

Christmas eve dinner

It was santas workshop for the whole week... look at all our wonderful homemade gifts! Greg and Lisa outdid themselves as always.


Claira was the most excited to make the gingerbread house.

Stealing candy from the house. She wouldn't stop asking for chocolate and cookies. Nor did she want to take a nap on Christmas... just too much fun and sweets to be had.

Tatum likes to hold Remi's hand

love tater's face in this one!

Remi trying out Tatum's baby doll crib

Our little flower child playing with her puzzle that Beau and I made for her. We made one just like it for Olive too.

"One more piece of chocolate and nobody gets hurt."

Remi in her first pair of jeans... so grown up!

Spoiled rotten! Claira likes to pamper her nieces.

Just found out that Beau's brother, Sutton, will be serving a Philippines Olongapo Mission! He will be leaving in March. And my other brother in Law, Meghan's husband Brooks, has gotten transferred to Turkey for the air force, so their family will be moving there about the same time! Crazy! Too bad everyone's moving across the world right before we will be moving back but we are happy for all of them!

Happy Holidays!

Beau is very good at making things work... first he got the string of lights to work, then he got them hung without a ladder (using a stroller that, by the way, was also a result of "making things work")

Tate's First real Christmas Tree!

Have to make sure Remi is decorated too!

After her 2nd bath... major pukage... it had to be done, didn't want her smelling like sour milk.

Flippin the bird. She doesn't mean it though, those hands cant say anything bad.

One week down!

Not professional quality by any means, but I wanted to take some pics of Remi for the fam to get a better idea what she looks like. She's just beautiful (if I do say so myself), a very sweet little baby.

Sweet Little Remi is Here!!!

Friday morning 9am November 5th was our scheduled induction time. It ended up being more like 10:15am or so... we agreed last minute to let LifeTime film everything for an upcoming show called One Born Every Minute. I wasn't interested until they told me we'd get a professionally cut video of the whole thing. Plus no one would be in the room, just small cameras so it was almost as if it wasn't going on. I figure it will be a funny story for Remi to have for later.
Everyone said how much smoother the 2nd birth goes but I didn't want to get my hopes up... luckily they were right. Night and Day between Tatum and Remi's Labor. I had her at 2:15pm and everything went like clockwork... almost too perfectly for an event that naturally is spontaneous and crazy.
She was 7lbs 15oz. and 20 1/4 in long. She's an absolute angel. So far a great eater and sleeper...I keep my fingers crossed!

Friday morning... off to the hospital- oh my!

Fresh out of the oven... skin to skin with mommy

proud parents

Getting all washed up and loving it, cant you tell?

Daddy loves his daughter. We're still waiting for her nose to straighten out :)

Big sister

She was excited to see her baby

We have a hard time getting kisses out of Tatum, but she gave Remi about 20 no problem

Grammy with Remi. She has been a huge help with Tatum, so glad to have her here with us.

Cute little worm


Our new family!

pretty in white

All dressed up and ready to go!

welcome home!

The Latest...

So I finally decided to give Taters her first trim to lose the mullet she had going on in the back...not much, just enough to get off all the stragglers.

precious little peach

and here's Vana to show off the latest of the Beau collection of corn hole sets. These retro boards were made for Shane Perry by request of his wife Sherri as a gift for getting into his specialty here at osu. We wanted to keep them cause they turned out so cool. Good job Beau, good job Shane, very sweet Sherri.

On a separate note... I will be going in Friday morning at 9am (2days before my actual due date) for my induction if Remi doesn't decide to come before then! So weird!
